No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Cvent full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I really enjoy working with the marketing VP, he's one of those unique leaders that really cares about his people and challenges them to improve. It's a young environment with lots of great energy and a good busy work pace. It's nice to work for a growing company, always lots of new things going on to keep things interesting.

Cons

Typical growing pains of a high growth company; office space is a premium, moving around, lots of new people.

Advice to Management

Provide corporate sponsored management training.

    I have been working at Cvent full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Plenty of growth opportunity if you're a dedicated and driven individual
    -PLENTY of business problems to figure out, and loads of projects that will keep you busy and engaged
    -Extremely talented group of individuals in the Internet Operations Department, DBA's included
    -Exciting time to be with the company since going public
    -Learn-by-doing environment with the opportunity to take on/improve on things you feel need improving
    -India team is an asset that really does set Cvent aside from other SaaS based businesses
    -Willing to take a risk on less experienced, young individuals that show promise and drive

    Cons

    -The Technology department, specifically Internet Operations, is FAR different then the Sales/Marketing culture. The office culture in general could use a bit of a face lift, the bland cubicles and packed floors degrade the awesome place that Cvent is
    -Company gives off a very "cheap" vibe when it comes to employees. This comes down from the top and is a culture instilled by Reggie (CEO) from times when penny pinching saved the company from collapsing
    -Mentoring is a bit of a pain point in the department at the moment because senior people and managers are so focused/busy with improving the business. While I consider myself a self-starter and enjoy being so, some guidance/training from time to time would advance my skills much quicker
    -Corporate IT department (IS) is a mess and managed poorly

    Advice to Management

    -Invest in your office culture more then just soda machines, it goes a LONG way to employee satisfaction
    -More guidance/mentoring could benefit the organization greatly

    Pros

    Fast growing company. Good career growth in the company. Somewhat Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Less Compensation. No work life balance. Micromanagement. Management just look for hours you work rather the actual work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micromanage. Just let the leads manage.
